A photographic encounter with an unexplained object in the New Mexico desert.

My daughters and I were in the New Mexico desert, returning home from a California vacation. We stopped to take pictures of us with the desert scenery. We saw and felt nothing at the time, but there were very strange anomalies in the developed photos, which were taken with two separate disposable cameras. The photos are being sent in a separate email file. They appear to show a transluscent object that approaches us in the course of the two pictures, and appears to "touch" my daughters with transluscent, ropelike appendages extending from beneath it. There is also an odd cloudlike anomaly in the sky in the first photo, upper left. Upon enlargement, it appears to take on the stereotypical craft-like shape.

((NUFORC Note: We have looked at the photos, and the object looks like a defect in the film, or perhaps caused by the developing process. The object is transparent, and looks somewhat like half a thumbprint. Not a UFO, we believe. PD))
